JOHN: Cats know what they must do today

"We definitely need to make sure that (Jeramero) Davidson doesn't get off the way he did the first game," said Lukasz "Woo" Obrzut.

"We definitely need to make sure that (Jeramero) Davidson doesn't get off the way he did the first game," said Lukasz "Woo" Obrzut.

Woo was, of course, speaking about the 28 points and 8 rebounds the all-SEC first team center dropped on the Cats to help the Alabama Crimson Tide beat the Cats in Rupp earlier this year. Davidson was 10-14 from the field and when he wasn't raining field goals on Kentucky, he was making trips to the free throw line, converting 8-12 from the charity stripe.

"We have good big men in Randolph (Morris) and Woo, but Davidson is one of the better players in the league and it's the responsibility of everyone on the floor to help out," said junior forward Bobby Perry.

Morris had a good game himself, scoring 19 points and collecting six rebounds in only his second game back from an NCAA sanction. "Randolph played well, but when you are only back two games it's tough for him to really understand our defense and get into the flow of the game," said senior Brandon Stockton, "I think Randolph will play even better. And we have to work to contain Ronald Steele."

Steele, another 1st-team all-SEC player, had an average game for him, scoring 14 points while playing all forty minutes for the Gators. Steele has recently had a couple of substandard games. In their last game against Mississippi State, Steele scored just 7 points and had 5 turnovers in 40 minutes of play.

"We can't rely on him having a game like that again," said senior Ravi Moss, "but we'll be ready. We know we have to pay a lot of attention to him."

"We are a better team now," said Stockton, "we are shooting better as a team now. When we lost at home to Alabama, we were at the end of a 3-game skid. We are playing a lot better now. I think if we go out there and play the way we are capable of playing, that we will be just fine."
